John Goodman and Roseanne Barr to possibly reunite on 'Downwardly Mobile'
John Goodman and Roseanne Barr might reunite on television in Barr's new multi-camera comedy series "Downwardly Mobile."
The actor, who was recently seen in roles on "Community" and in the Oscar-nominated film "The Artist," is reportedly in final negotiations to co-star with Barr in the pilot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It has been almost 15 years since the two actors were seen together on "Roseanne" when the show ended its run in 1997. Goodman played Dan Conner for nine seasons and will possibly play a man who works at the mobile home park where Barr's character serves as the owner and sort of surrogate mother to her poverty-stricken tenants.
Goodman has appeared in several movies and television shows since "Roseanne" went off the air and has had roles in "Damages," "Treme," "The West Wing," "Red State" and the HBO TV movie "You Don't Know Jack" with Al Pacino.
It was announced in January that "Downwardly Mobile" was picked up to pilot by NBC. Barr previously starred on her reality series "Roseanne's Nuts," which showed her running a macadamia nut farm in Hawaii was canceled in September after one season.
Barr announced on February 2 that she is running for the Green Party's presidential nomination. Barr said she is a longtime supporter of the party, according to the Associated Press, and believes the two major parties don't represent the American public.
